This is the true story of a courageous girl from Hiroshima who was two years old when the atomic bomb was dropped.

According to an ancient Japanese tradition, a thousand paper cranes will restore good health. Sadako managed to make 644 cranes before her life came to a peaceful end. A stunning edition, in both hardcover and paperback, is available to commemorate the 50th anniversary of this classic, moving work. Text copyright 2004 Lectorum Publications, Inc.
